yesterday. new details about the fast and furious scandal. three more guns were discovered at crime scenes in mexico. the rifles were train to a gun shop -- were traced to a gun shop in arizona. the government encouraged that shop to sell weapons as part of the botched gun running operation. >>brian: here we are with tebow. it is just a sprain and should be back shortly. day two gets underway and molly has more on how it is unfolding. >> good morning. we're here, day two in boston, the next day of the r.n.c. summer meeting. they have been here since yesterday afternoon when it kicked off. today we have new jersey governor chris christie who will be speaking at a luncheon and r.n.c. members

planning to cover a lot of ground including rising stars. the new initiative aiming to inspire expansion within the party including women and minorities and including marilyn garcia. later this afternoon the focus will be on women. r.n.c. members taking time to talk about the tough issues that have caused strife within the party. a spokesperson says the party is laying the groundwork to have a stronger presence in minority communities across the country. >> we know we have neglected some of these communities in the past and we need to start talking to them and explaining that we're with you on a lot of principles. if there is this perception problem that the republican party has with a lot of communities, we need to fix that. >> the r.n.c. is planning to highlight some of their technology initiatives. >>gretchen: thanks very much for that update.
3:05 am
while the republicans are getting together and meeting, the president is on vacation now. he's in phargt that is vineyard -- in martha's vineyard and playing golf. he has been playing with a group of gentleman, one the comcast c.e.o. after that the obamas went over for dinner. >>brian: he played with the president of the world bank. brian roberts is the c.e.o. of comcast which owns nbc universal. evidently he had to wait, the president, for brian roberts to show up. many people said wouldn't this be an opportunity to spend the day with a donor of a broadcast corporation which is very supportive of him. >>peter: i think the president is hanging with some of his solid political buddies. yes, mr. roberts is a contributor. other folks at comcast are
3:06 am
bundlers putting together millions of dollars for the president. the president also spent time with an npr host. he's seeing a lot of folks that stand up for him on a daily basis in the martha's vineyard area. >>brian: let's talk about obamacare because that is what is still on everybody's mind. everybody is talking about obamacare and a lot of people bringing up a-rod as an analogy. they say are republicans criticizing obamacare is really not news. it is like a-rod criticizing baseball after he's been caught juicing. then it gets worse from there in terms of credibility. >>gretchen: now there's a democratic congressman caring obamacare implementation to the way in which the constitution was implemented way back when. >>brian: likely didn't understand the constitution. >>gretchen: he's trying to say we didn't like the
3:07 am
constitution, didn't understand it at the time. the same could be said, he said, for social security and medicaid. here's congressman gregory meeks. >> when social security came out people didn't understand that completely. when medicare came out, people didn't understand that completely. but over time we developed and we got it right. the fact of the matter is when the constitution came out, people didn't understand that. and there were problems in the constitution. we didn't say get rid of the constitution. we fixed it. >>gretchen: the problem is with some of those particular programs like social security and medicaid, it's almost worse when people did understand it because we understood there is not enough money to pay for social security and understood there is a tremendous amount of fraud in medicaid. >>peter: when the constitution was passed people fought for it. >>brian: they cheered. they melted down the statue of the king in new york city. no one really had to understand it. do we continue to fine-tune it? absolutely. >>peter: it is kind of a
3:08 am
hidden message. it is a democratic message. the message is medicaid, social security, universal health care. they are de facto constitutional rights. when he compares those policies to the constitution and he makes them equivalent, he's saying this is a constitutional right. that's part of the democratic philosophy. >>brian: he's saying people don't understand it. other people look at it and say it doesn't work. it's impossible to understand. for example, what we talked about yesterday with the individual mandate capping individual contributions now because insurance companies say we can't handle that capping where you want us to cap. it's too low. can't make ends meet. so he decides to raise that cap increasing the burden on the u.s. taxpayer. that was on the website, the labor department website in february. this is so unwieldy. there's so many moving parts. >>peter: you're right and people haven't looked at that that the out-of-pocket costs are going to increase. >>gretchen: i think this goes to show that when this
3:09 am
initially passed as the law of the land, many people were concerned it was going to be too complimented to ever implement. and you heard from different groups whether it was governors, insurance companies, whether it was private citizens, whether it was physicians. they all had their own concerns about implementation. now you're seeing that come to rest. here we are three years later and a lot of it is not going to be implemented or delayed. some of it is political and some of it is just a lot of red tape almost impossible to do. >>brian: if you were trying to get ahold of me last night i didn't pick up the phone because i was on the website vouchercode pro. >>gretchen: be careful. when you're using vouchers, some people might -- >>brian: good point. i wanted to know if i fit in the category, if my car fit in the column of the biggest jerk on the road. am i the person to have outrage? is my car quick to be
3:10 am
targeted? is my car making my crazy? voucher pro has the answer. the good news is the tahoe is not on it. >>gretchen: my chevy s.u.v. is not either and neither is the color. who is the most aggressive driver out there? what color car do they have? and what kind of car do they have? i was stunned by this, if we want to be stunned by a silly car study. >>brian: how dare you? >>gretchen: i hope we didn't pay for this. it's a bmw, stunned by that. but i was more stunned by blue. blue are aggressive drivers? >>peter: this bizarre study said drivers in those blue bmw's are most likely to get angry at 5:45 on friday afternoon. >>gretchen: well, duh! >>brian: he's got a beautiful car. nobody is on the road. >>peter: that is not an angry ride.
3:11 am
that is an elegant one. >>brian: they say people with a blue bmw are the quickest ones to be angry on the road. >>peter: i think they're kind, those people. >>brian: the reason they're angry is because if you have a blue bmw, you can buy another. it is most likely insured. >>peter: they say land rovers, audis and subarus. >>gretchen: what does the study accomplish? people get most mad at 5:45 on friday. i think we all knew that. monday morning commute rates second. really? any way, men lose their temper seven times a month. women get angry three times a month. is that only on the road. >>brian: if you want to know how we're expressing our rage -- get a pen ready -- road rage, you do it by cursing, using obscene gestures and erratic driving. i did not know that was the
3:12 am
formula for road rage. from 8 to 8:45 yesterday i was not picking up the phone. >>peter: when you get to be 35, you'll have a problem. >>gretchen: chris chulo is no longer speaking to you as of yesterday because during the suitcase segment, you remember you asked somebody to sit on the suitcase. >>brian: because he's stocky. >>peter: he's a great packer. >>gretchen: excuse me? and that just earned you zero, negative points with chris. >>brian: here's chris chulo. next a child falls from the roller coaster, a third accident at an amusement park in a few weeks. is anybody safe? we'll find out. >>gretchen: your phone bill is about to get higher. charles payne says you can thank the president for that. what does he have to do with that? he's on deck. >> the very worst drivers,

>>brian: think your cell phone bill is high now? it's about to get a little bit higher. president obama pushing for a new tax on monthly cell phone bills to pay for his plan to put wi-fi in every single classroom. >>gretchen: this is why you don't get your itemized bill anymore. the president said earlier he didn't need congress's help to get the plan off the ground. listen to this. >> i'm determined to see it through on behalf of our kids. and for those of you who follow politics in washington, here's the best
3:17 am
news. none of this requires an act of congress. >>gretchen: if it doesn't require that, how will the president move this plan forward? here to explain from fox business network, charles payne. >> good morning. he doesn't need our help, our vote, our support? >> no. he does not. there are three narratives. the first one is i am king. i can go it alone. the president threatened more and more he's going to do everything he wants without congressional approval. the bottom line is checks and balances, whether it's the supreme court, whether it's congress, the president is going to change parts of the health care law. in this particular instance he's going to use the f.c.c. to implement this new rule. that's one of the big things here, one of the overarching things. then there's redistribution of wealth and the idea that all the wealth in this country belongs to the country, not the
3:18 am
individuals who have earned it, not the companies who have earned it, but to everyone. sort of like the public domain. hence, how can we let some kids not have high speed internet when others have it? i'm going to make this fair. i'm going to snatch this money. >>gretchen: he wants to put wi-fi in more classrooms. how much is that going to cost? >> there's some estimates it costs $6 billion but you know how these investments are when the government gets involved. it's going to be multibillions and billions of dollars. this brings us to the third point. middle-class taxes, there won't be middle-class tax hikes but we know there have been. this would be a tax on every single person watching the show who didn't get a free phone from the government, they are going to have to chip in. >>gretchen: i've heard there are some taxes you can call your phone companies and say it's an optional tax like i don't want to pay this tax. do you think that would be -- >> i don't think this one will be optional.
3:19 am
i think this is an f. kr-fpl c. mandate. -- this is an f. kr-fpl c. mandate. congress is going to put up some form of a fight. >>brian: through executive order he can put a tax on your phone bill and say it's for the kids and schools. you're saying there is enough money in that pot any way. another thing to bring up when it comes to taxes is steve martin in 1978, when the tax man comes to ask you for your taxes, remember these two words: i forgot. >> remember these two words: go to jail. >>gretchen: don't pull a biden on us. that was three words. charles payne, that's two words, and he's hosting varney and company, a three word show. 9:20 on the fox business network. >>brian: straight ahead, the plane crash that killed kids in their home never should have happened. why some knew this was a safety person. >>gretchen: parents outraged over this

3:25 am
book states people happily accepted islam as their way of life. what are you going to do about this down in your county to stem the tide of this kind of book? >> i'm really excited about the direction this has taken in brevard county. we've been under the national spotlight about this book. about 50% of the ninth grade students in florida are also using this book. a lot of people have said just throw out the book. the backside of that is not only would it cost a half million dollars but there isn't a better book out there we're aware of. we're going to pull together a group of experts locally, state and national and come up with a supplement our world history teachers are going to use to supplement what we believe is missing in the textbook and to give students a better perspective, other perspectives of various world events. what i've been telling people is we're going to take the bowl of lemons the state of florida has given us and make lemonade out of
3:26 am
it. >>peter: it seems incredible there is no book out there that has a separate chapter on christianity and judaism along with a chapter on the islam faith? >> that intro you gave is a little misleading. the florida next generation sunshine standards covers videos on christianity in detail in theicsth grade. -- in the sixth grade. in ninth grade history, state standards have us spend more time on islam and muslim history. it is covered at different grade levels. >>peter: let me ask mr. boon your thoughts. are you satisfied with what the county is doing to ameliorate this problem? >> i think it is a good beginning. i think we need to look at the process of how these books are accepted, how they're vetted. the fact that we have a world history book that minds full of mush will be

little bit about what's being revealed about the night of the osama bin laden raid. >>brian: there is something we don't know? >>gretchen: there's photos coming out of the situation room. hillary clinton had her hand over her mouth and everyone was at ten alternative and we're watching -- was attentive and we're watching leon panetta give them the breakdown of what happened in that raid. apparently osama bin laden was killed around 3 p.m. washington, d.c. time. remember the president came out late that night, somewhere around 10 or 11 to say to the american public osama bin laden had been killed. now his former personal assistant is saying in an interview that later on at night the president was doing something that some people might be surprised at. >> typically like the weekends he'll work like a half day. and this sunday, i mean we
3:34 am
worked -- i mean, we were there until almost, i think he went on tv at midnight, almost midnight, and sat around in the private dining room kind of like -- most people were in the situation room and he was like i'm not going to be down there. i can't watch this entire thing. he, myself, the white house photographer, we must have played 15 games of spades. >>brian: some people say -- he said during the entire thing. some said he was killed at 3 and then there was a long process, four hours until they identified the body. maybe that was the time. however, he said during the entire thing, makes you think he was playing cards. so his decision to get out of there because the pressure was too great or he thought he wanted to clear his head i thought it was interesting. if anybody knows what it is like to be president obama, it is reggie love. he has been close to him for four years. >>peter: it is one of the
3:35 am
strangest things. >>brian: to play cards. >>peter: i don't know what mr. love is talking about. it really makes no sense for him to go on tape and give an interview that the president is playing cards during a takedown, he can't watch it and can't be in the situation room and he played 15 games of spades, i don't think the president is happy with his friend, mr. love. >>gretchen: how could he be? >>brian: they took it down right away. >>gretchen: there's two issues here. the fact that a former personal assistant who probably knows a lot of stuff that went on actually said this publicly, if it's true. and number two, the second big issue is is it appropriate for the president of the united states to be playing 15 games of spades when osama bin laden is being killed? i mean i understand there's a lot of down time there but i think the first issue is the most important, whether or not it's even true and whether or not the white house now will respond to this. because i think it's a pretty big issue. do you think jay carney will be asked this today. >>brian: should the president be playing cards
3:36 am
while the seals are killing osama bin laden? >>gretchen: the imagery of it even if there is down time. >>peter: you can think about great leaders over time, winston churchill playing cards with franklin roosevelt. we're talking about a critical point in american policy, a critical point involving american troops on the ground getting one of the most infamous leaders of the 21st century, a person who took out thousands of americans and caused a couple of wars basically. and the thought of the president playing cards while other people, most of the people, mr. love has said, are in the situation room, it's con founding. i don't really understanding what to make of it. over time maybe we'll understanding it but this morning i think most americans are shaking their heads and saying what's that about? >>brian: 24 before the top of the hour. other news. >>gretchen: sequester cuts hitting our country's wounded warriors.

that's what you're looking at. that happened across utah. we have a serious fire out there. there are two ways a firenado can form. one when a fire forms near a wildfire and picks up flames. the other way is when there is a heavy concentration of heat generated in a small area. when the air heats up it rises and you get images you see on your screen. very impressive and very dangerous. we're looking at wet weather across parts of the southeastern u.s. locally up to 8 inches out here and across the center of the country severe weather possible from south dakota all the way down to texas. of course we'll keep an eye on that. let's head back to the studio. >>peter: it's a summer camp like you've never seen, teaching kids about the role of law enforcement. anna is here with the story. >> i headed to upstate new

[ laughter ] >> gretchen: wow. okay. fox news alert. notification of possible income underreporting. that is a tearout, part of a quote of one of these letters -- >> brian: think about that, you're trying to make ends meet and all of a sudden you get that. you know it could destroy your business. you got to get your accountant

involved and put everything down. you got to stop everything you're doing. >> gretchen: time is up. tom vees a small business owner who received one of those letters. he was on the greta program last night. here is tom. >> the letter was very threatening. it's making almost -- almost making an accusation and as you get into it, you don't really know what the accusation is about. it was a notice that i may have underreported income. called my tax accountant. we work real hard and so i called him to find out how to respond. i guess the first thought comes to mind after reading it is, it must be a way to try to either make sure that there is compliance in the laws, and/or get additional revenue from people like me. >> peter: that would be pretty ose
4:09 am
letters. but is it illegal? >> gretchen: you would know. you're a lawyer. >> peter: i could give an opinion. chairman darrell issa has another opinion. >> i believe that the trust of the american people was broken and it continues to be broken -- >> i didn't ask you that. >> i understand. >> if we see a law broken explicitly, we will go to a referral. right now what we see is something worse. we see the intent and the recognition of people that the irs should not be a political body and that if it is, it could be the end of our democracy. we see that being broken even while so far we haven't found criminal violations. >> gretchen: well, that's fascinating because if there is intent to intimidate, is that not criminal? if it's not, peter, let me ask think as a lawyer, then will it continue to happen? is there any way to really stop it? >> peter: i think it happened in the past. i think letters of that type
4:10 am
have been sent out to americans for some time. that's my belief. are there other illegal things going on? chairman issa and u.s. attorneys are look at the irs and there is some inference that there may be. but in terms of a letter like that, it's really disturbing, it really would be nasty to get a letter saying you're not reporting what you're supposed to be doing. is there an audit? are you trying to arrest me? what's going on? what should i be doing? should i be writing to the irs? who do i call? what do i say? what do i do differently in terms of what i do going forward? so it's kind of nonspecific. in that sense it's really kind of hurtful and disturbing. >> brian: i don't know how the irs works, if they ever have general meetings with management. but is this the right time to be shaking down another key element of american society? >> peter: no. >> brian: come on! you own a restaurant, trying figure out obamacare, who is going to be insured, now all of a sudden, got to find out if at the think you're cheating?
4:11 am
>> gretchen: i was going to say, many of the small businesses can't figure out obamacare, so that was enough of a problem. now this. let's turn to something peter alluded to earlier about getting photos at j.c. penneys. what about this ad? it's a back to school ad and for years where when we were growing up, we saw the cool things you're supposed to be wearing at school unless you wore uniforms, which is one reason why that's a good idea. but here is the ad. see if you think it promotes bullying or not. some people do. watch. >> i've been told the stuff can make or break your entire year. but i'm not even going to pretend to know what cool is. i'll just take him to the sale and leave the rest to them. >> why do i do my back to school shopping at j.c. penney? it's the only place i can get my kids arizona jeans. >> brian: the only place i can get what? >> gretchen: jeans. i think the problem with the ad is that a solo shot of a child by themselves in the school.
4:12 am
in other words, feeling ostracized because they apparently didn't go to j.c. penney and get the cool clothes. that's created some sort of a firestorm. >> peter: i guess. come on, get real. listen, maybe there should be uniforms for everybody. maybe that's offensive when they say make or break. maybe they're trying to break these children. >> brian: maybe they should be forced to wear football uniforms and eye black. here is the thing, it is absolutely intimidating. this is a very risky thing jc penny is trying to do. when i thought cool in the past, i never thought penny's. i never said mom, bring me to penny's, i want to fit in. but that's what they want to see happen. what they're doing is talking about penny's and back to school. however, like it or not, in school, kids hang out with other kids because they're perceived as cool. halfway there could be how you're dressed. >> gretchen: this is why i'm in favor of uniforms and i never thought i would say that. but going back to school
4:13 am
shopping -- there was a loft anxiety with it. now my kids wear uniforms and as a parent, it's so much easier. >> peter: go to penny's -- >> brian: or not be cool. >> peter: it's going to make or break you. >> brian: here is what you're saying. david saying this, there is nothing in the ad that promotes bullying. good example of hyper sensitive usa that we live in today. >> peter: yes. >> gretchen: maria in tennessee, it says if you're not wearing j.c. penney jeans, you're not good enough to be around. another one, what doesn't cause outrage? americans need to get it together. see, i don't even know -- do you watch commercials that closely to even pick up that the child is sitting there by themselves because they didn't go there? >> peter: when somebody breaks your arm in florida, that's bullying. >> brian: that's true. this could be the beginning of that. dress in penny's clothes or get in a fight. write us 'cause we'll continue to monitor. straight ahead, she's known as the angel of death. accused of killing 46 kids is

4:18 am
convicted on one of these murders. correct? >> that's right. it's been reported it was -- she was convicted of a serial killing, but although you technically with the number she was involved in, she probably was a serial killer, but she was tried for one murder case. >> gretchen: so there is a loophole in texas law that after 35 years, if she had good behavior, if she could continue to come up for parole. but now, is it correct for me to understand that it's a mandatory release coming up in the next few years for her? >> that's what i understand. i haven't looked into that and looked up the statute 'cause i'm now a congressman. but at the time we were aware that we had written laws to shorten the time in prison mainly 'cause we have very overcrowded system back during the '70s and '80s. so we awarded a lot of what you call good time. the jury was allowed to know
4:19 am
about good time, but not how it would be pertaining to the particular case they were on. same thing for parole. >> gretchen: right. it's my understanding the jury was not allowed to know that she was possibly implicated in 50 other deaths. why was she never prosecuted for these other deaths of babies? >> of course, the prosecution decision was made down in san antonio, most of the events took place in bexar county in san antonio. i got this case in williamson county on a change of venue from kerrville where at this another judge a favor to try this case. there was one case in san antonio, but the other thing that happened in the midst of our trial was that the hospital in san antonio shredded the records. >> gretchen: so now there is a push for somebody to come forward who may have been involved in one of these cases who lost a child as a result of miss jones because unless you come up with new evidence and can try her on a new charge, she will, in fact, be released.
4:20 am
>> well, we have a demonstration during our trial and at least 30 women showed up claiming that they had a child that she had in some form or fashion injured or killed. it was kind of a problem for me, but i took care of it. the bottom line is, there is plenty of folks that know they lost a child. the question is, request they meet the burden of proof to prove it? >> gretchen: i see. congressman john carter of texas, who was the judge in this case, complicated situation. but we're talk talking about it here. thank you. >> thank you. >> gretchen: talk about a big screwup. why the treasury department was forced to destroy millions of dollars? then the dos and don'ts of asking for a raise. brian, are you paying attention? >> i heard sally makes five grand more than me. >> gretchen: cheryl casone with the best ways to score a bigger paycheck. come on over, cheryl.

>> brian: you want a raise. but did you know you could kill your chances all by how you ask and when to do it. here with what not to say when asking for a bigger paycheck is cheryl casone from the "fox business" network who is doing this segment for free. >> yes, i actually am. that is true. obviously you want a raise, or there are sometimes you need to ask, but there are a lot of ways not to ask for a raise. if you're going to ask for a raise, really timing is everything. listen to this. >> i know the timing isn't great, but i'd like to discuss getting a raise. >> this is a don't because you don't know what's happening at the company. if the company is doing well, you can check the financials of most companies to see if business is good. but if you're sitting around, bored all day, you don't have a lot of work, maybe the company isn't doing so well. if they're throwing huge parties and it's going to be a christmas
4:26 am
blowout, then maybe you could ask for a raise. but typing in the company is what you got to be aware of. >> brian: if there is a company adding to the roller derby, thanks for bringing me, but i'd rather have the money in my pocket. >> exactly. >> brian: there is another fact that you want to bring forward. >> never do this to your boss. >> if i don't see a bump in my salary soon, i'm sending out my resume. >> brian: threaten them. >> go right ahead, sweetheart. good luck with that. never, never, never threaten your boss. that's the worse thing you can do. but if you come in and say, you know what? i have an offer and if you're willing to walk, you've got to be willing to take that offer and walk if they're not going to match that offer action that's an acceptable ultimatum. >> brian: how about the fact that i've been here a long time, should i get more money for that? >> funny enough, length of employment is not a true reason. here is a mistake. >> i've been here for a year and a half now and i'd really like to see a bigger paycheck.
4:27 am
>> okay. government data is now telling us that people are just getting back to 2008 salaries. so does it matter how long you've been there -- it doesn't matter how long you've been there. but if you had a promise when you walked i getting a year after each year, six months, et cetera, that's a valid reason. but it's not a valid reason to say, well, i've been here long enough. >> brian: how about this, i'm having trouble at home, my house payment has gone up. i'm on an adjustable mortgage. >> if you are, we have to adjust that. but everybody has personal issues. listen to this. >> here is the issue, i need a raise because my father lost his job. i have to support my family. >> look, everybody has problems. while your boss is going to be sympathetic, at the end of the day your value is as employee of the company ask certainly they probably know things are going on of the but if you could go in, give data, i've been doing this, achieving this and that. that could probably get to the rate. most people aren't going to be jerks about it.
4:28 am
they're not going to give you a raise simply because you got personal issues. but i do have good news for you. i wasn't able to get awe raise for this year action but i can buy you breakfast. >> brian: fantastic. 20 bucks. the diner is calling my name. listen, i got two things. one, you have good casting. great actors. number two is when you hear the music, never ask for anything because as soon as you hear the chaos in the background, i know there is going to be trouble. what time today? >> noon eastern time today. >> brian: i'll be watching. i have cable. up next, an incredible story, how a cat, yes, a cat helped convict a man of manslaughter. plus, don't try this at home. a diver puts a shark in a trance for 15 minutes.

of the tragic death of your daughter and what should law enforcement be doing in this country to insure that these needless deaths don't take place anymore? >> well, my daughter was doing what she was supposed to do. going to the park is not a problem. shouldn't be a problem. the issue is the fact that there are so many illegal guns out here, so law enforcement should be doing what they are doing, which is try to get the guns off the streets, sound the source and negate that source. i don't know. it's so much to say. so many people that are affected by violence and i think that it's very important to identify the fact that people are dying left and right here in chicago as relates to guns. so stop and frisk i believe will be something that's encouraging in chicago to the violent

a german shepherd. the story behind this picture that has gone viral. not me, but the one i'm sharing the screen with. "fox & friends" starts now. >> gretchen: good morning, everybody. >> brian: it's been a crazy show, especially with what's happening in cairo, in egypt. the unrest is unbelievable because the military is not backing down. the muslim brotherhood is not backing down. morsi still remains in prison. one thing is pretty clear, our people are being totally ignored, from the secretary of defense to the secretary of state, to the president. >> gretchen: and also the president has yet to really comment that much about it. he had a briefing on it yesterday, but will he be now in a situation where he's going to have to have the united states have some sort of say here? >> peter: is it a civil war? >> gretchen: that's our fox news alert from egypt, death toll, 525 people in one day have been killed.

5:05 am
things that have caused strife like immigration. there is also focus in lay ago groundwork, have a stronger presence in minority communities, appeal to a broader audience and younger voters to help the party grow. >> i think it takes time. obviously you have to work very hard on the ground. i think that in our particular case, i have to focus on the things i can control and that's why i'm focusing in on the ground game and digital and data programs. >> the rnc is going to try to draw attention to the technology initiatives as well. >> gretchen: thanks so much. >> brian: we'll see about the aftermath after governor kristy speaks. it's always fun to get the e-mails after michelle malkin comes on of the you got a loft big supporters out there, michelle. welcome back. >> thanks for having me back, brian. >> gretchen: she was just here on the curvy couch. >> brian: i missed that? >> gretchen: yeah. you missed an appearance. she's back in the little screen
5:06 am
talking to us. let's talk about marco rubio. many people still speculating he may run for president on the republican side coming up in the next few years. he's now warning we should legalize immigrants because president obama, he believes will do it anyway. in your mind, is that the reason to do it? tough situation for him, i think, on this issue. >> well, he's dug himself into a hole and he can't get himself out. so he has resorted to rather desperate, silly and may i add craven rationales for sticking with his disaster. to argue to conservatives who believe in limited government that we should pass this massive amnesty monstrosity because obama is going to do it anyway smacks of the worst kind of political expedience. i think that marco rubio's higher ambitions have clouded his brain. he's not arguing anymore that we
5:07 am
should pass some sort of border enforcement plan because it's the right thing to do and good for the country. if you want the outside the beltway translation of what he's arguing, it's we need to pass something because republicans need to take credit for something that everybody knows that obama is going to selectively enforce anyway. >> brian: right. >> that's called giving up. >> brian: executive orders is what got us the dream act without anybody's con consensus. he decided to do that. made a mockery of immigration enforcement and he's probably not off, he feels the president will pick and choose what he likes in the immigration bill and make executive orders and try to get his agenda forward. >> so rather than serving the agenda of a tyrant, what he should be doing is fighting on the side of, say, the ice agents who sued the obama administration over that fiat and even though they did not win that case, they found a
5:08 am
technicality. the judge in that case specifically said that he agreed with the ice agents, that this administration had overreached. so rather than give up and capitulate and say, well, he's going to do it anyway, you should go down fighting with every last breath and try and persuade people instead of legalizing millions of illegal aliens and continuing this same pattern that we should put a halt to it once and for all and do the right thing. >> peter: let's look at this rodeo clown controversy, michelle. walk us through this thing. on one side the naacp in missouri wants to make this rodeo clown a racist terrorist threat to the president. on the other side, some people are making this rodeo clown a demonstration of the first amendment in the country. white house says it's not one of missouri's finest moments. is this getting out of control? what do you say? >> well, what we have here is
5:09 am
insane rodeo clown bashing posse of obama apologists and self-appointed civil rights leaders in the sensitivity police. it's ridiculous, of course. these people have probably never been to a rodeo before. it's a rowdy atmosphere, they'll make fun of anybody and in the past, of course, there have been rodeo clowns who have had hillary clinton masks and george bush masks. it is about free speech, of course. and i think what's going on here is that you've got these missouri so-called progressives who are looking to exploit this on behalf of claire mccaskill, who needs all the help she can get. >> brian: let's see what the representative of the white house said. i haven't heard about the president's reaction on this one, but that's the follow-up to he said it's not his finest moment because he's from missouri. >> gretchen: what do you make of the fact that -- i think there was a member of congress in texas who invited the rodeo
5:10 am
clown to come over to texas. >> brian: how do we know it's the right one? could be anybody. >> i think what's happening here is that the clowns in the white house don't appreciate the competition. there is another more serious point here, too, and i posted ten pictures on my web site, images of george george during his administration that are far, far worse than any of the gentle ridicule and mockery that this president has received. kill bush, a fascination sheik. these weren't just fringe people mocking our president and had the least amount of respect. many of these very violent and inciteful images appeared in major film festivals and art galleries. i think it bespeaks of the rank hypocrisy of the tolerance mob. and the thin skin of the white house. >> gretchen: let's talk about somebody who may be changing their tune a little bit and that's bono.
5:11 am
he now is praising capitalism? >> brian: speaking at georgetown university. he came out and said that aid is a short-term fix. long-term it's going to be capitalism that gets the world out of poverty. where is this coming from, michelle? >> i don't know, but i'm not going to question any change of heart on the part of hollywoodn.

5:17 am
all modern islamic terrorist groups. theospaned al-qaeda. they created hamas. in fact, i make the point in the book that without the creation of the muslim brotherhood, 9-11 would have never happened. i say that without hesitation. osama bin laden, khalid sheikh mohammed, all the al-qaeda kingpins before they formed al-qaeda, they belonged to the muslim brotherhood. the brotherhood is the gateway drug, brian, to islamic terrorism. these are very, very bad guys. they are terrorists in suits in many cases and we can not support a group that's inherently anti-american, anti-semitic, but that's exactly what we've been doing under this administration and it is disastrous. we're seeing the effects of that right now in egypt. >> brian: we've done the impossible. the muslim brotherhood hate us and now the egyptian people hate us for supporting the muslim brotherhood. how have we done this? >> brian, that was so disheartening to me as an american. a few weeks ago in tahrir square to see egyptians holding up signs saying that america is a friend of tyranny.

president obama is a friend of the muslim brotherhood. so disheartening because the brotherhood is a tyrannical, totalitarian organization and we have taken their side and i interviewed muslim brotherhood operatives face-to-face. i lay it out in the book. these guys are slick. they wear suits and ties. they're eloquent. western educated. quite charming if i didn't know better. our government sees that, brian. they say hey, these guys are moderate. we can work with them. this is just a disasterous decision by our government. >> brian: it makes no sense because we made a decision when hamas won the election, we would never deal with them. but muslim brotherhood wins, we say great, give me a hug. it makes no sense. and senator mccain led the charge on this. but in the big picture, people at home wondering what side should we be on? you believe muslim brotherhood will get support from outside its borders. >> yeah. remember, there are some 70 branches of the muslim brotherhood around the world, including hamas, by the way. palestinian branch of the muslim brotherhood, they're going to get support from the whole
5:19 am
global jihaddist network. they will not go quietly. i think we are seeing the seeds of a civil war. by the way, why should every american care about what happens in egypt? well, if the suez canal is target where had a lot of the world's oil passes through every day, we will feel that every time we go to the pump. oil and gas prices will skyrocket. >> brian: so egypt's defining civil war, it's crazy what's happening right now in the middle east. >> what does israel do, surrounded by all that chaos? >> brian: exactly. they're being forced to talk to the palestinians about peace. hard to be optimistic about that which started this week. we're watching it play out. thanks, eric. >> thank you. >> brian: 19 minutes after the hour. bob massi gets more questions about wills than anything else. up next, he will tackle a very controversial question, when and how to cut your kids out of your will. you heard me, kaitlyn, kirsten and brian. police officers handing bags of potato chips to pot heads?

>> peter: dealing with your financial estate can be tricky, especially when figuring out what to leave your kids when you pass away, or even to include them at all. fox news legal analyst bob massi has tips to think about when dealing with divvying up your assets. this is really important and people don't like to talk about it. so the first question is, why do some parents actually disinherit their children? >> it's always a tough emotional issue, peter. but there is a couple reasons and there is many reasons. one would be that maybe one child does better than others financially. maybe they married into money or very successful. sometimes you have problem children, drug addiction, alcohol, things like this. sometimes some children are born with challenges where they're under some kind of federal or state aid, so under the law, they want to try to disinherit them to protect those type of subsidies. there is a lot of reasons, but those are some very common
5:25 am
reasons. >> peter: a great explanation. is disinheritance necessary under these circumstances, or can it be avoided? >> i've talked to some high end estate planning attorneys who say that, listen, bob, when you're in this situation with a child that had drug abuse or alcoholism, you could actually leave them some things in your will or trust, but you have to put guidelines and say listen, i want them in rehab. i want them drug tested. i want them to go through programs. and put conditions that if, in fact, they're clean, they get a little bit of money over a period of time. that's a big burden for the trustee that's appointed to oversee this. the other thing is if you have a child that has some kind of challenge medically, disability and they're getting aid, you could do what's called a special needs trust. these special needs trusts, again, qualifyied estate planners could set it up so they could get benefits through your inheritance, but don't affect the government subsidies they're
5:26 am
receiving. so that's why estate planners can help. >> peter: final question, bob. should the child be told of a disinheritance once the will or trust is done? >> that's tough because ultimately no matter what, they're your blood, you love them. at the same time, they caused you a lot of heartache. that becomes a personal choice. many times personal choice lawyers write letters to the children and say your parents have done their estate planning. this is basically what could happen, and sometimes, believe it or not, there is reconciliation. they open up the line of communication. they try to fix the problem. so god willing, these things don't happen often, but it's a reality in life, particularly with the baby boomers right now dealing with some of these issues. >> peter: that's why people come to bob massi to fix the problem. reconciliation. my brother, bob massi, we'll see you next week. >> thank you. >> peter: there are most wound warriors, the men and women at walter reed. up next, the disgraceful way they are being treated thanks to

>> peter: we're back with a fox news business alert. jobless numbers just released. nicole petallides has the breaking news live from the new york stock exchange. nicole? >> thanks. i want to take a look at some of the names, things we're look at as far as our economy. couple of pieces of news we just got. weekly jobless claims came in. they can be volatile. 320,000 versus the estimates of 335,000. so that was slightly better than expected. we also got in consumer price index, which shows inflation numbers and how we're doing as far as inflation is concerned at the consumer level. that's pretty much in line.
5:32 am
there was an empire manufacturing number here in new york that was a little bit weaker. so we are seeing u.s. stock index futures point to go a lower open today. so it looks like we'll pull back even though we lost yesterday as well. >> gretchen: let's talk about this white house plan. president obama defending a plan now that could add another government surcharge to your cell phone bill. i think it would be about $5 a year, or maybe $5 a billing cycle. i'm not sure. but the entire cost is 4 to $6 billion. what is it going to do? >> right. that's absolutely right. we were talking about now adding to consumers' costs once again. president obama and the administration are look at a way now, and this is something they're doing for schools. what is it? it's high speed internet access for schools. it allows students to use digital notebooks. teachers will customize their lessons like never before. that sounds great, doesn't it? and here is the real interesting part. president obama doesn't even
5:33 am
need congress to approve it. so this could be a big achievement for president obama and his team right in the administration for the current term. but obviously how do you pay for this? u.s. consumers, of course. that could be tacked on to your mobile phone bill. republicans are being see adamant about this that they are not going to approve this. they don't want to raise costs for consumers. they will even, if this proposal moves forward, they said they will hold congressional hearings and pressure the sec to side against the plan because obviously this, as you noted, will cost americans more. so that's something that -- you know, just to make a point, wal-mart today came out with some numbers. one thing that they noted was that higher payroll taxes hit their consumers. so you're not seeing the consumers hitting the retail stores the way they did. so they're weaker. another dow component is cisco systems as they're slashing 4,000 jobs. you have to key dow components

5:38 am
they are a little below average. we're talking waking up to temperatures in the 60s. this afternoon widespread temperatures, only in the 70s. i want to take you to the tropics because it is august. we're still in the atlantic, hurricane season, even though it feels like fall and we just have brand-new newly formed tropical storm erin across parts of the atlantic ocean. right now maximum sustained winds at about 40 miles per hour. it's off the coast of africa. so it's very far away from us. we're not really looking at any impact possible from the storm system right now. maybe in the next couple of days, or actually next couple of weeks, over a week at least before the storm system begins to approach parts of the caribbean. otherwise we have another area that we're monitoring across parts of the western caribbean and it is going to be moving into the gulf. we could potentially be seeing a tropical storm developing there. but if it develops or not, the big story with that storm system is going to be a lot of heavy rain across sections of the southeast over the next several days. locally, more than eight inches of rain will be possible. flooding is going to be a concern out there. right now we already have rain moving through parts of the
5:39 am
carolinas, parts of georgia. as we head farther west, we have a threat for severe storms, from parts of texas to parts of kansas. keep an eye out for damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes possible. minnesota, 43 in international falls. we're going to stay below average through the afternoon. >> gretchen: that's why they call it the icebox of the nation. that's warm for them. thanks. >> thank you. >> brian: 21 minutes before the top of the hour. the obama administration giving congress special treatment when it comes to obamacare. but one congresswoman, shelly moore caputo says not so fast. lawmakers should be treated like everyday americans and joins us next. >> peter: plus, take a walk on the wild side with us. the host of "america the wild" here with a gator, a fox and a bear. >> brian: the bear is in the studio. >> gretchen: is brian going to stay for that segment. >> peter: it's going to be next to you, brian.

5:44 am
>> gretchen: just because the obama administration is letting congress off the hook on certain provisions of obamacare, doesn't mean all lawmakers want the special treatment. our next guest says she wants to make sure members of congress are treated like all americans. joining me now is west virginia congresswoman shelly moore caputo. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: let's bring our viewers up to speed on where this stands right now. you were going to be treated like all americans with obamacare, but then the president reportedly injected himself into the discussion at the request of some members of congress who said hey, we really would like to keep some of these subsidies for ourselves and our employees and you said what to that? >> i said no. members of congress should be treated like every other american who is being forced to go to the exchanges under obamacare. we have a lot of people, 7 million people, losing employer-sponsored health care, are going to the exchanges. members of congress, we're going to be in the exchanges, which we are, we should be treated as
5:45 am
everyone else, that's fair. and we should be held accountable. i want to make it clear, i oppose obamacare and have voted repeatedly to repeal it. >> gretchen: so what you want to do is introduce a bill -- it will be called no obamacare subsidies for congress after 2013. how successful do you think that's going to be? my supposition would be it will has the house, but maybe not so much the senate. what do you think? >> well, we're having town hall meetings all over our states right now. and i am hearing from people who are outraged that congress would be put in a special category. they see it as an issue of fairness as i do, too. i think our members, once we come home and come back to dc in september, we will join together i think to eliminate any subsidies to congress. it's not fair and we need to be held accountable for this and our constituents are making sure we will be over the break. >> gretchen: one of the arguments some members of congress used as to why they need the subsidies for themselves and the staff is something called brain drain. they say that look, we're going
5:46 am
to lose all these great workers that we've had on capitol hill if they don't continue to give them the subsidies. i'm talking about people who have asked for this exemption who were in favor of obamacare. congressman martin heinrich, tom udall, congresswoman michelle kristen, congressman ben ray and so on. you can see them on your screen there. what message would you say to them as far as some americans looking at this as a double standard? >> well, i would say to them that regular americans, nonmembers of congress who are forced to go to the exchanges because their employers are dropping the insurance are not eligible for subsidies. members of congress should not be eligible for subsidies. it's about fairness. it's about accountability for those lawmakers, many of whom who you mentioned who passed obamacare. i believe that we shouldn't be put in a special category and i believe that if this moves forward, that the subsidies should be eliminated.
5:47 am
>> gretchen: i have a feeling that there are a lot of average americans out there who like what you're saying because they do feel the politicians sometimes get special perks. so it will be interesting to see what happens with your proposed bill. keep us posted, will you please, congresswoman? >> i will do that. thank you very much. >> gretchen: mo problem. have a great weekend. things are about to get pretty wild right here in the "fox & friends" studio. the host of "wild" here with a fox and a bear for brian. let's check in with bill hemmer. you want to come and meet the bear, don't you? >> it looks like a morning nap. how about that, if you don't like the rules, you change the rules, right? that's what the law is doing, huh? >> gretchen: i've seen you do some interviews on that. >> unbelievable. good morning to you. how is that national debt working out for you, folks? what if the real number is 70 trillion? new evidence that obamacare is going to be a big adjustment for millions of americans. why would lois lerner use her
